Race detail

The course is similar in most aspects to the Kimmy Kanter run earlier this year.
The start is in the woodland below the football field, quite near the entrance gate to the entire complex.
On the reclaimed railway track, the race stays on the starting level and takes a long outreach, swinging in a broad arc right. It exits by a right rurn up a steep baqnk (marshalled in the actual race and difficult to locate in current circumstances). At the top of the bank (50m or so) it continues to rise by a path alongside a field, exiting after 100m at the top by a right turn (200m- at this point it cuts the Kimmy Kanteer route), then a left and again up a bank (shorter!) to exit and access a long narrow wood.

The course now picks up the same field and golf range - to- finish area as the Kanter did.
(1) Continue to the second lap by keeping the football field on your left side or
(2) Run to the finish which is at the football field entrance.

Numerous parts of the race are difficult underfoot- sometimes icy in the past but this time very muddy. Country shoes or stout road shoes are advised.
